Because of this, we are treated to not one, but two Mariah Carey tunes. And while Mimi and fellow judge Nicki Minaj go at each other’s throats early in the evening, their story ultimately has a happy ending when Nicki gives Ms. Carey her due. These two may fight hard, but they love hard and it truly is the greatest love of all. More »

Two performances from American Idol winners of past seasons were on tap to pass the time on Thursday: country singer and winner of season 10, Scotty McCreery, as well as the very first winner EVER, Kelly Clarkson. There were also many montages to remind us how the contestants fared when they had to sing from the Burt Bacharach-Hal Davis catalog, as well as when they chose song selections that they wish they themselves had written.

There are two rounds tonight. The first is from the Burt Bacharach-Hal David catalog and the second will be songs the contestants wished they had written themselves. While Angie Miller and Janelle Arthur definitely shouldn’t crack the top three with their combined performances, Lazaro was the most consistent Wednesday night, in that his rounds are both equally lackluster.

We were be treated to a reminder montage of Wednesday night’s events during the results show, as well as performances by former American Idol winner Carrie Underwood and season nine contestant Casey James. Not to spoil the outcome for any of you who haven’t yet seen the show, but it’s probably a safe bet that we will be seeing a female winner this season. I mean, a sympathy vote can only keep a guy in the game for so long. At least, I hope. (Cue me giving America my side-eye.) More »
This week was tough for some contestants, who we’re used to seeing as top contenders as this specific genre threw them for a loop. Consistently quirky Burnell Taylor fell short in his solo performance, and Miley Cyrus clone Angie Miller also stumbled during a duet. But nobody knows how to forget lyrics like Mr. Lazaro Arbos, bless his heart. How will America react? Only time will tell, as we will find out on Thursday’s (April 4) results show.
Also, Orianthia, badass lady guitarist, is performing with the contestants tonight and delighting me to no end. She’s such a scene stealer with her black hat and long, blond hair. But before then, let’s get to the singing! More »
Because the contestants already got the performances out of the way on Wednesday, Fox filled up the hour on Thursday with guests and dragged out the voting results for what seemed like an eternity. However, my dear, sweet Keith Urban hit the stage, which made it all worth it.
And let the games begin! More »
There are some surprises in store, as Lazaro Abos delivers his first decent performance since Las Vegas and usual judges’ favorite, Angie Miller, falls flat for the first time on the big stage. Given the sympathy vote Laz has been rocking as of late, this could spell big trouble for lil’ Angie tomorrow during the results show. Also, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj reveal they still enjoy poking at one another whenever possible. That, and tweeting.
OK, well, let’s start sanging, y’all! More »
I have to say, tonight’s episode left me quite disenchanted with the entire democratic process. While all’s well that ends well, as in none of my favorites went home, it was enough of a scare for me to commit to voting next week. Fox is going to be looking quite suspiciously at my IP address, I tell you what. I don’t care if I have to hit up every Starbucks within a five mile radius. All right, well, enough with politics. Let’s get back to the show! More »
This episode sees Keith Urban proclaiming just about each and every Beatles song to be his favorite, Nicki Minaj back in top form with strong opinions for everyone, from contestants to her parent company Fox, and Mariah Carey exploding with love for her Lambs after being prodded by Ryan Seacrest. Oh, yes — and Randy Jackson is still clumsily accessorizing himself.
Now that I’ve set the scene, I’m already trying to envision what song my girl, Kree Harrison is going to sing. More »
The judges looked so confused, wandering out onto the stage with no one to lead them to their chairs. Mariah Carey was gorgeous in her raspberry gown. Nicki Minaj was strutting her stuff in a lime green or bright yellow shorts romper. Keith Urban and Randy Jackson were wearing their standard fare.
Now, let’s see how the Top 10 — soon to be minus one — handled the tension. More »
